Brandon Sun: David Chang Named America’s Outstanding Chef


David ChangDavid Chang is proof you can have a second career.

The man who once worked in finance has been named co-winner as the nation’s most outstanding chef  by the James Beard Foundation, reports the Brandon Sun,

His co-winner Paul Kahan is further proof that a second career is possible. Kahan once had a career as a computer scientist. Not anymore.  Kahan is now atop Chicago’s restaurant scene.

Chang’s two New York restaurants, Momofuku Ko and Ma Peche, are the hottest seats in town.

“I grew up dreaming what it might be like to do this and how impossible it might be,” said Chang, “I’m really, truly honored. A tie could not have been better because I’m glad I’m not up here by myself.”
